Thanks for your reply. I'm a real novice when it comes to wix and I'm currently trying to disentangle the wix-based installer in phpmanager, which has some very "interesting" properties like compiling the c# code on-the-fly for reasons I don't know.

If InstallUtil is not a good choice, what are your recommendations regarding c# based custom actions?
Feel free to just point me to an existing documentation, if it exists.
